Where to start? Well I bought my first Pearl kit in 1989 and was impressed with the quality then. Fast forward to 2007, and I'm looking for a new kit to play out live with, and settled on the trusty old Exports. OK first off, the Exports are not super-pro quality recording drums (nor do they carry a matching price tag). That said, these are excellent drums for the weekend-warrior, beginner, occasional recording artist, or anyone with low cash funds for drums. They are built incredibly well, with excellent hardware. First thing I did was replaced the heads. Remo Pinstripes all the way around (except snare, I use Coated Emperor), with Ebony Ambassodors on the bottoms (which looks killer because I got black Drums w/ black hardware). I'll tell you right now, the drums I got are the new "EX" badged drums not the old Script style badges. So why does this site sell this same kit with a 10" tom, 1 more stand, hi-hat attachment, and 14" floor tom (Instead of the massive 18" you get with this kit), for nearly $500 more??? I play fast, and have long been a fan of Tama Iron Cobra pedals (which I use on my other kit), but I was really surprised by the feel of the new P-120P pedals. Pedals are obviously a very subjective thing, but I liked the feel, when moving the footboard back to the light setting, and adjusting the springs to medium tension. very easy to get rapid double strokes, or to just flat-out pummel the neighborhood with blast beats!!! And of course, most important to many drummers, very expandable and also parts are easliy replaced. Pearl has always done an excellent job, making their components available, from the huge selection of add-on tom sizes, to hardware replacement parts. For the price, you're not gonna find a better deal.

this is one of pearls lower lines, however, for what its worth its a good deal. if you arent playing in huge arenas and places like that, this is the way to go. it doesnt take 4 hours to setup like most people have said if you actualy know what your doing, its actualy quite simple if your an experianced drummer.also, if you want to use this to play any gigs...new heads are a good idea, the pearl heads arent to bad but if you want to use this for anything worthwhile invest in some heads

This is an awesome kit! I have had it for two months, and I recommend it for the drummer who ether is a beginner and wants an affordable yet excellent set or for a working musician. The Pearl heads aren't worth much, but they sound ok. Those people who say that it takes hours to set up don't know what they are talking about. The Pearl hardware can not be beat! The pedals could be better but why replace something that works well? Over all this is a SWEET drum set, and you should buy it!
I've had this kit for nearly a year now and it's held up great. i do suggest you replace the heads cuz the stock Pearls suck. I went with powerstroke 3's on the bass batters, pinstripes on the tom batters and ambassadors on the tom resonant. they sound pretty amazing now, i did replace my snare tho, the one it comes with is fine but i like the sound of a metal snare much better. i've played several shows with these drums and they sound great in all environments as long as you tune them well. absolutely great drums!
I got this set a couple weeks ago and it is amazing...completely destroys my old set. The toms are nice and deep, especially the 18 floor tom. The feeling and look of the two bass drums is a lot better than playing single bass. If you want a nice sound with the bass, tune them to 75 on the batter and 70 on the resonant and they will sound amazing! All of the hardware is very sturdy and will stand up to anything you throw at it. Overall, a great value for the money.
This set is simply AMAZING. I got it and I've absolutely loved it ever since. It does take a while to set up and I highly reccomend getting some dampening rings, but it is an awesome kit. I love it. As far as getting a bunch of drums for a bit of cash, this is probably the BEST deal you can possibly find. Plus it's a pearl, undoubtedly one of the best brands of drums. I simply see no flaw with this set. I come from a school where we just make do with what equipment we have. My set is nicer than the school's now! The hardware is awesome, the heads are great and resistant, the shells are nice. It's an awesome set. I highly HIGHLY reccomend it
I love this set. It takes a while to set up and tune once you get it out of the boxes, but once it is ready, you can rock to your hearts content. The heads aren't the best quality. There is a loud overtone that I needed to buy O rings to fix. The only problem is that I havent't found one for the 18" floor tom, so it still sounds bad. I love having 2 bass drums. It gets a much better feel than a single drum with a double bass pedal. It is also an awesome deal for the price. So if you have the cash, I would recomend getting it.
I own this set. Great sound and looks good. This is my 3rd drum set, but this one is the one that sounds the best. For good quality sound that looks good backing up a band. This is the set to get.
I am really impressed by the quality of this drum set. The heads kind of blow but what can you expect from single ply. My drumming teacher came over to tune it for me and even he was impressed! He has been playing daily for 32 years! He left kind of jealous. He liked the double bass. What a deal! Don't hesitate! I just wish I could find expansions for it with the black hardware. I've been searching but haven't found yet, only chrome.
This drum set has great quality long lasting and good tone. If you look at the picture on the internet its not how it looks its just a bit different. Still awesome. Cymbal stands don't move an inch! pedal awesome if you loosen the tension. Pearl Thx for the video. Everybody buy this drum set.!! great deal.
I am just a beginner but this set was more than I was expecting. Even the space I had set aside for it when it was set up was under estimated. It was a little bigger than I expected. I really love the quality, even though some of the reviews say it is a lower end Pearl set. I think it is one of the nicest sets I have ever seen. I always thought that drum sets were over priced, not anymore. This was a really good buy. I expect to learn to play pretty quickly because I don't think I am ever going to leave it!
I purchased this kit about a year ago, and was amazed at the quality of the exports. I placed remo pin stripes on them and boom!! I later added the 8" & 10" expansion toms, and I am now in business. I have owned a lot of different brands over my 34 years of playing, but I can say the initial impression from these particular drums were their strength. It is an incredible value. I guess with saying that, I am a Pearl drummer now.
